Till, thanks for the help, but on trying it, I'm coming unstuck somewhere. I'm trying a test install on an Ubuntu 9.10 virtual machine. The problem is the server in question will have to connect to MySQL on a different machine, due to that machine's main database being a replicated copy of another one, hence I tried the install specifying a server other than localhost as the database server.
Once I'd granted privileges on that server using "WITH GRANT OPTION", the setup ran fine, but then when trying to log in to the control panel, I now get
Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Access denied for user 'ispconfig'@'10.43.0.70' (using password: YES) in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/classes/db_mysql.inc.php on line 73
Now, I don't know how ISPConfig3 works internally, but I am getting, in the MySQL server's error log, an access denied message every second, whilst HTTPD is running on the ISPConfig server.
Any idea where I go from here? Do I just need to start the install again? Is there an apache module that is somehow talking directly to MySQL?
Thanks, any help appreciated!
p.s. Forgot to mention, actually subscribed to HowtoForge, for anyone who is questioning it, it's worth it just to get rid of the site adverts, and the tutorials as PDFs are really useful. Haven't tried the VMWare images yet, but will soon!
